Statement

Art has been there since the very beginning. A companion that never left my side, watching me in the distance even when I was doing other things. She waited quietly, patiently until one day she saw me in complete solitude. I picked up a brush and that’s when she leaned over and whispered, What took yah?

Inspired & influenced by the great masters worldwide, But it's the women that played a crucial role in his life, which is why he pays tribute to them with his paintings. Despite his tendency towards geometric and abstract shapes, a common theme in his artwork is

the one-eyed figure. This motif, symbolizing his alter ego, also serves as a self-portrait of his subconscious.

Casiano himself has shared, “I'm blind in one eye, but the irony is I was painting figures with a single eye years before losing my vision. Perhaps foreshadowing”. Despite this physical challenge, he has never allowed it to hinder his passion and dedication to art.

Casiano's pieces have been showcased in galleries from the U.S. to Europe and even as far as China, earning him numerous honors, awards, and worldwide recognition through global publications.

His exhibitions span across various cities such as New York City, Philadelphia, Santa Rosa, San Francisco, Paris, and Oudewater, Holland. Corporations and private collectors worldwide have

acquired several of his works.

His ambition is straightforward: to introduce something unique and unseen to the fabric of modern-day culture. He intends to do this one beautiful painting and one exhibition at a time.
